In the 1970s Disler researched on thematic and formal elements he shall later work with during his entire artistic life.

Disler lived and worked in Zurich, New York, Vienna, Paris, Harlingen/ Holland, Milan, Engadin/ Switzerland and in Les Planchettes/ Jura (Switzerland) until his premature death in 1996.

In 1981 he executed the important mural painting Die Umgebung der Liebe at the Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart. For 2006 two big retrospectives about Disler´s work are in preparation…
